No, Yes, Magic

I don't QT any fish, and these tangs in particular went from the bag to the tank since I had to rush to work. I have never had any problems, as far as im concerned if they live through capture a temp change, and water chemistry change isn't going to kill them. I think QT is a great thing, but ive had people tell me there fish died in Qt then theres always that question about "would it have lived if i just added it to the main". To me the sooner the fish is in a "more" natural environment with more space the better it's chances are. I know this can be quite a discussion, but thats not the purpose of this thread. Some of you may think my methods are irresponsible, but Ive only lost two fish. Both were jumpers.

Have you tried to lighten your pictures using microsoft Photo editor? It might help to show off those beautiful fish.

Tell you what, your tank may be overstocked but it sure looks better than mine. **** algae!

Good luck with your experiment, that tank must be really cool to look at.

Actually, that seems like a valid argument. BTW, I know it's not your intention, but have you noticed any schooling behavior?

And any problems with agression between the clowns? I had to return my clarkii after I found the perc had a bite mark in his tail! I guess the tank size is in your favour?
